resume in just a moment. >> we now continue with "moyers & company." >> faithful viewers of this broadcast know that from time to time we ask poets to drop by and share their work with us. this time, our guest is the versatile philip appleman, whose creativity spans a long life filled with verse, fiction, philosophy, science, religion, and above all, moments of every day experience captured like the glint of the sun sparkling through a crystal glass. just take a look at a sample of his legacy -- "darwin," "apes and angeles," "darwin's ark," "in the twelfth year of the war," "open doorways," and this, my favorite -- "summer love and surf," about the joys and wonders of loving and living. his latest book of poems is "perfidious proverbs." a fellow poet said that to watch philip appleman "sling words is to be richly regaled." i quite agree. welcome, philip. >> wonderful to be here, bill. >> i have long thought of poetry as music to be heard best in the voice of the composer. so let's go right to some of your poems. >> good. i love it. >> here's one of my favorites. and i thi
